Digitmovies presents the volume XXII of the series devoted to the Italian Peplum by issuing for the very first time on CD, complete and in full stereo, the OST by Gino Marinuzzi, Jr. for the movie "Marte, Dio della guerra" (aka "The son of Hercules vs. Venus").
A few tracks from this score had appeared in mono on a promotional CAM CML library LP, but we made the remarkable discovery that in addition to the excellent condition of the master tapes, the OST had even been recorded in a spectacular full stereo. Gino Marinuzzi, Jr. has written and conducted a beautiful symphonic score where the heroic main theme gets introduced in the "Main Titles" (Tr.1) and reprised in Tr.2, Tr.6. The author alternates dramatic and violent music themes for battle scenes (Tr.4, Tr.5, Tr.7, Tr.18) with mysterious and magical sounds (Tr.12, Tr.15, Tr.19, Tr.22) and with an exotic love theme which appears in Tr.4 and is later reprised in Tr.8, Tr.24 as well as in the two "Finale" tracks - one version with choir (Tr. 25) and the alternate take without choir (Tr.26).
